.....As a young athlete, Quigley would show up to training or a race without a psychological game plan. How she felt mentally was left up to chance – or the outcome of her race.

Bethany`s Notes: See what Quigley has been doing over the past 4 years to focus on her mental health and prepare herself to be at her best come 2021. I love her tips and recommendations and would encourage others to consider adding them to their daily routine.
